Please no tabs within tabs, it's dreadful. Why are the keyboard
shortcuts in a different dialogue/need button pressing? I never changed
any single option in the keyboard applet, apart from my keymap, but do
tweak keyboard shortcuts more often.

FWIW, Apple put the Keyboard accessibility in Accessibility (Universal
